Design objective

To improve the front and rear garden for garden loving clients who no longer want to battle with the challenges of ongoing upkeep, making the gradients safer to pass, the terraces functional and the planting to be beautiful yet lower maintenace!, for clients who are passionate plant lovers.

 

Project build phase

Restricted access to the rear, heavy clay soil means 2 things, summer drought for plants, deep foundations for the structures, with micro machinery.

 

Firstly we installed a 1000 litre rainwater harvesting tank under the rear lawn, this will help my plant loving clients, extra deep wall foundations, this will ensure our main retaining wall is not compromised by the clay heave. Once the rear terrace was laid, we reinstate the lawns, introduce the new planting scheme, low maintenance mulch and finaaly a new non slip resin bonded gravel driveway and bespoke handrail to ensure our clients can enjoy a safe journey through their front garden aand driveway every time they go in and out of their home.

 

The summer period planting scheme was quenched by the harvested rainwater to defy the rules of text book planting times, once again our goal was achieved, a 5 week schedule to our aim, delighted clients who enjoy there summer terrace dining the day after works are complete.
